Dan Wesson Specialist Black (Blem) - 5" 9mm
Availability: Out of stock
The Specialist is one of the newest additions to the Dan Wesson stable. When police departments approached us to build them a more reliable, durable 1911 to replace the ones they had been carrying, we developed a model just for them. The additions that made it ideal for law enforcement also make it perfect for home defense, so we gladly offer it for sale to the public.
A full-size 1911, the Specialist is chambered in .45 or 9mm and loaded with features to satisfy a public servant’s special requirements. The forged stainless steel slide wears our popular Clark-style serrated rib with a single amber tritium dot in the rear sight and a green lamp with white target ring in front.
The frame sports an integral 1913 Picatinny, 25 LPI front strap checkering, undercut trigger guard and recessed slide stop to enable the installation of laser grips. Equipped with an ambidextrous thumb safety, extended magazine release and detachable two-piece magwell, the Specialist is operator-friendly. It is finished off with a set of G10 VZ Operator II grips that force the hand into the beavertail and hold it there.
The Specialist ships with two 10-round 9mm magazines and is available in Duty Black finish, which makes for an especially hardy pistol that scoffs at everyday wear and tear.
This is a factory "Blem" meaning it has a minor cosmetic imperfection(s) found during final inspection, but is still a perfectly good/mechanically sound firearm. These are usually not noticeable unless you know what you're looking for and even then may be difficult to locate. The pictures below are stock pictures of one of the "Blem" guns and may not be the exact firearm you receive.
